Author’s note: I know I have used the terms blimp, dirigible, and zeppelin interchangeably - mea culpa. They all float. -- Paul Hawkins


Enzo Fabrioli was a third generation American, descended from Staten Island immigrants. Enzo Fabrioli loved his country, and he had always loved airships. No one had to tell him about them - as a boy he had seen them in a book and been instantly filled with wonder. He had asked his papa about them and his papa told him about the great airships of yesteryear. His papa also told him to get his head out of the clouds, but Enzo never did. His grand papa, who spoke hardly any English, told him to keep dreaming, since he was only a boy.
